Peace underground

Wednesday,3rd April 2019


We are proud of the beautiful body

that has belonged to nobody

you have little pride in physical beauty

that too shall lie buried underneath


we grew mustaches

and tried to reach

the level of racism

forgetting altogether the role of humanism


you turned arrogant

and kept greed present

in each counter of dealing

and forced it with a cunning smile


but nothing was to accompany

not even your dearest company

they were to be left behind

with simple goodbye at an end


you lived with noise around

but lastly found

the dead peace

under the burial place to live at an ease
